Excellent4.7 Based on 673 reviews from review us onAsh OgdenAsh Ogden ★★★★★ It was great to share the wall with such knowledgeable people. Tyler especially but special shout out to Kevin who scaled the wall with the speed of a mountain goat. My mate also enjoyed it. Here is one of the 60 photos taken. Highly recommend.Wayne WoodwardWayne Woodward ★★★★★ My mate and I had a fantastic time! Tyler our guide was very knowledgeable, patient and funny. He effortlessly catered for the varied range of skill the group had. Tyler made sure every one got the most out of the few hours we had.Highly recommended.Herman AguileraHerman Aguilera ★★★★★ It was one of these sparkling winter days and nothing could go more perfect : I had a private kayaking tour ! Sometimes, tourists like me can get lucky and this was my day. I had Adriel, a very young, professional and caring instructor who after his very busy morning with a group of Taiwanese tourists had me signed up for the afternoon tour. Maybe the 1pm tour that day was meant to be for 1. The river current was perfect and Adriel having checked for no alerts started the tour inbound to the Queensland Maritime Museum, always staying vigilant for the city cats or ferries. The tour was a unique learning experience about the city landmarks, the life of the river, and again being the lucky "lone kayaker" I had all my bundle of questions answered by a very knowledgeable instructor! Extremely grateful to Riverlife Adventure Centre.Hannah WanderseeHannah Wandersee ★★★★★ Riverlife was a highlight of my trip to Brisbane! Along with one other person, I booked the 11am kayak tour and was guided by Lucas— he was so wonderful!! After a quick but thorough safety demonstration, Lucas helped get us settled in the kayaks and then we were off to the story bridge. Along the way he pointed out wildlife, buildings and sights including an old shipwreck, and was full of interesting facts! If you enjoy being on the water, absolutely book a kayaking trip here!Response from the ownerHi HannahThank you so much for sharing your experience with us! 🌟 We're thrilled to hear that your kayak tour with Lucas was a highlight of your trip to Brisbane. Lucas will be delighted to know that his guidance and knowledge added so much to your adventure.

Your recommendation means a lot to us, and we hope to welcome you back for another adventure on the water soon!

What a wonderful team at Riverlife. Thanks for this outdoor activity .Sallyann HonnibalNeil ManningNeil Manning ★★★★★ Sunday afternoon margaritas, the things you find when you're out for a walk 🍹Amelia ZhaoAmelia Zhao ★★★★★ I booked an abseiling guided tour and had so much fun! My instructor Matt was very helpful, encouraging and patient. We had a briefing, put the safety gears on before we went to the cliff for the activity. I have done rock climbing before but still a bit nervous before trying abseiling for the first time. Just don’t look up and down while you are doing it. The participants in my group are stars too who gave me a lot of encouragement! I had two go within the 1.5 hour experience (group size 7). Overall it was a great experience I’d recommend.David DellarDavid Dellar ★★★★★ A great place to hire a bike to see the sights of Brisbane .nicolas Tardiotanicolas Tardiota ★★★★★ Went for the morning abseiling and was a great experience.
